The MintFinder Website requires a minimal amount of Personal Information to maintain account information and communicate with publishers who have registered with MintFinder ("Service Partners") regarding use of the service. Additional information may be needed in the future by us or by partners in order to provide Service Partners with additional features and services. If additional information is needed, we will amend this policy and post the changes on the MintFinder Website. We may also notify you via email of the changes although we will use good sense and reasonable judgment when doing so. Username

The username that you choose can contain elements of your name or can be some other form of unique identifier. Your username will not be visible to the public or to other Service Partners.

The MintFinder Service uses the email provided by Service Partners only as a means for us to communicate with each Service Partner concerning issues related to the use of the Recommendations Service. This email address is not visible to others within the system. MintFinder will not rent, sell, or disclose your email address to third parties. MintFinder may send Service Partners certain communications relating to their use of the Recommendations Service or changes to Recommendations Service features, Terms of Service or the Privacy Policy.

Disclosure

MintFinder may disclose account and contact names internally and with advisors, investors, and others with an interest in the use of the Recommendations Service. We limit access to specific contact information internally to only those employees and contractors who design and maintain the system information stores or who have a reasonable need to come in contact with and make use of such information for account purposes.

Recommendations Service

No Personal Information

MintFinder does not collect, store, or make use of any Personal Information of anyone who uses the Recommendations Service ("Service Users"). Whereas Service Partners may collect Personal Information, MintFinder does not come in contact with, and specifically disclaims any association with, any such information. Service Partners that use site authorization may use usernames as a key for the Recommendations Service for its users. MintFinder has no control over the data contained within usernames and uses this information only as a database identifier.

MintFinder may record IP information of Service Users. Such information may be used for monitoring, auditing, and reporting use of the Recommendations Service.

Use of Aggregated Information

We will use information only in the aggregate in order to monitor and improve the Recommendations Service.

General Measures

Security

MintFinder has implemented and follows industry standard measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of Personal Information. However, no Internet site can fully eliminate security risks.
